I waited for nearly an hour up until 20 past 5 from when 558 went past Ripon and never saw her, which way around Lincoln did she fly ?

According to the chap accross the road, strait over Glebe Park ~x( ~x(
Although as I wasn't at home ~x( ~x( I've no idea if she did or not.

I do know she transited through Scampton amd on to Elvington, as I heard them tell that to Waddington.

Ha - at least you saw something with an engine! All I've seen other than EasyJet buses going into Luton is this desperately trying to avoid the houses along the road from us the other evening:
